The main feature of this book is a discussion of 'role analysis' and its relevance to social structure. Arguing that the role system of a society is the matrix of its social structure, the author presents a detailed theoretical analysis of the problems inherent in this approach.

Chapters cover:

· The problems of role analysis.

· Conformity and deviance

· The coherence of role systems

· Degrees of abstraction

· Structure, time and reality

Originally published in 1957.
